If you already had a definition for a heavy duty truck, you will probably have to reconsider after reading something more about the truck we are presenting you. It is a word of the Atacama 7900 expedition vehicle made by Action Mobil. This beast is built on the basis of the chassis of a MAN Nutzfahrzeuge TGS. All in all this vehicle weighs 42,220 pounds GVWR, therefore a serious machine needs to set this huge truck in motion. For that reason, the engineers of Action Mobil have chosen a six-cylinder straight turbo diesel MAN engine with intercooler that delivers 540 horsepower and has a total displacement of 783 cubic inches.
This power is sent to all 6 wheels (it has permanent 6×6 AWD) via ZF 12 Astronic TipMatic automated manual transmission with a two-speed transfer case. Nevertheless, in the video below you are going to see how actually a car (in this case a 4×4 Suzuki Jimny) is fitted in this moving fortress. The transport platform is made of aluminum whilst the lift is moved by 6 hydraulic cylinders. All operations (for placing a vehicle inside) are controlled by a wireless remote control.
